Investing in technical education for the future

May 09, 2018

Students at Hanze College in Oosterhout, The Netherlands, are now working with a range of machinery, tools and materials donated by locally based Hitachi Construction Machinery (Europe) NV (HCME). The donation, delivered in November 2017, is just one of the ways in which HCME supports technical education at the college, as an active member of its foundation, Vrienden van het Hanze College (Friends of Hanze College).

Among the items presented to its technical department in November 2017 were a column drill with several new drills, welding equipment, a drying cabinet for welding electrodes, and steel profiles. This will be used for production, installation and energy classes.

Two diesel engines on a stand were also donated and will be used for mobility and transport classes. All of the materials were transported free of charge from HCME’s location in Oosterhout to the college by Martens Transport.

Tonny Engels handed over the equipment on behalf of HCME to Robert de Jong from the college’s technical department, who said: “We are delighted with the donation and would like to thank Tonny, HCME and Martens Transport for this injection of materials for technical education!”
